Amber with Alia Atkinson Jamaican Olympian
What a great conclusion to another record setting year. Four individual swimmers (Abigail Bush, Kasey Jordan, Matthew Petreski, Tommy Lorenz) and three relay swimmers ( Amelia Bush, Callie Jordan and Amber Blake) represented Hammerhead Aquatics at the 2017 FGC Senior Championships.
A record number of qualified swimmers, in a record number of events. Ourswims at this meet were highlighted by our three finalists, Abigail in 100 and 200 breaststroke, Kasey in the 100 freestyle and Matthew in his 4 events. We entered 5 relay events, all swimmers had best time splits, all relays set club records and our 800 free relay placed 7th. For the first time, we scored 33 team points and placed 33rd in the team rankings.
Everyone should be very proud. Just think, 3 years ago at our first team swim meet almost everyone got disqualified in most
events, we now are swimming in our Championship events and placing in the top twenty in most of our indivdual events.
CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OUR CHAMPIONSHIP SWIMMERS!!!
Matthew Petreski will represent Hammerhead Aquatics at the next Championship level meet in College Station Texas at Texas A&M University where he has qualified in four events. We wish Matthew great swimming and will look forward to his report after our break.
Remember we are now on our end of the year break and will come together again on Monday, August 7, 7:30 – 9:30AM refreshed and ready to begin a new year. Take care this week stay active, continue with your sit ups and push ups, walk, run, hike and STAY SAFE AND HEALTHY.
CONGRATULATIONS ON A GREAT YEAR.
